David Hughes: Sutton Trust Summer School (5/7/2021 - 9/7/2021)

Each year, we host a free week-long summer school intended for those studying anywhere in the UK who still have a year to complete at school. The aim is to demystify elite universities and to equip students with the knowledge and insight to make high-quality applications to top universities.

During the week, participants take part in a varied programme of academic and social activities designed to give insight into what university study would be like. Students will learn about student life, as well as attend academic sessions in two subject areas of their choice. Sessions are also held on the UCAS application process, personal statements and student finance to ensure advice and guidance are given on all aspects of the journey to university.Description
